Rep. Ramsey sets reelection bid

Rep. Matt Ramsey of Peachtree City says he wants to serve another term in the Georgia General Assembly.

“It is a tremendous privilege to have served the people of House District 72 for seven years and it is my hope that I have earned their trust for another term,” Ramsey announced Tuesday.

Ramsey serves as majority whip, a leadership position in the House Republican Caucus.

District 72 straddles western Fayette County and a southeastern chunk of Coweta County, which includes all but a northwestern slice of Peachtree City, unincorporated middle Fayette, Brooks, Senoia and Haralson.

In his announcement, Ramsey said, “Throughout my years of service, I have been committed to supporting family values that mirror those shared in our communities. I recognize the importance of a thriving economy and have worked to support initiatives that encourage business development and growth in our district. We have so much to be proud and optimistic about in our community and state and I will continue to work to move Georgia in the direction that ensures our best days are ahead of us and not in our past.”
